The president of Hagerman Construction was given the Sagamore of the Wabash.

Nate Fink, a professional engineer who has worked with Hagerman for more than 35 years, received the award Aug. 23 from Sen. Jim Banks, R-Columbia City.

Fink is on the board of directors for The Lutheran Foundation, Lutheran Life Villages and the Northeast Indiana Regional Works Council.
